After hearing crowing from the henhouse over the weekend, I needed visual proof of the guilty party before I wrongfully convicted someone of being a rooster. I’ve been suspect of the two buffs for a while now.
So, I sent Gwen out there Sunday morning to try and spy the loudmouth. But, when she returned, she fingered this guy:
I was still not convinced the other two weren’t roosters. I mean, look at them! Don’t they look more rooster-y than the red to you??
So, I went out this morning and peeked into the window. In the dark it was hard to see for sure which chook was which, but they started crowing in turns so at least two of them are. The red has already been witnessed so I’m pretty sure the other pair are both roos as well. I’m a little sad to see them go, but after the symphony they played for me this morning, I can clearly see that the end is near.
